Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado, in conjunction with the Montrose Public Lands Center, invites the public to complete the missing link on a local loop trail that is very popular with ATV, dirt bike and mountain bike users. About 50 volunteers are needed to help build the new section of the Coyote Wash trail in the Dry Creek area.
The original loop trail ran through a wash that impacted riparian areas. This project involves the construction of a new section of trail that will re-open the loop using the International Mountain Biking standards for multi-use.
"Once complete, this popular trail will not only be sustainable, it will also offer all users the opportunity to enjoy great views of the West Elk and San Juan Mountain ranges," said Katie Phillips, BLM volunteer and visitors services coordinator.
In addition to rewarding work, free camping and meals will be provided for registered volunteers.
The work event begins Saturday, May 5, at 8 a.m. and continues through Sunday, May 6, at noon. Participants will gather at Rim Road staging area.
Volunteers must pre-register to ensure adequate quantities of tools, supplies and food. Register via Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado's Project Calendar at www.voc.org, or call 303-715-1010. The minimum age to volunteer is 14 and experience is not necessary.blog comments powered by Disqus
